Shine On You Crazy Dimon, Part II

Pace my earlier "Shine on Your Crazy Dimon" post on the criticisms and complaints JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon is getting for his Bear Stearns deal, I couldn’t help myself from rewriting the lyrics to the Pink Floyd song.

Here you are (to be sung, of course, to the tune of Pink Floyd’s "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"):

Shine On You Crazy Dimon

Remember when you came from Banc One, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

You were caught in the crossfire of Joe Lewis and lockup,
blown on the legalese.

Come on you target for Hank’s laughter,
come on you raider, you legend, you banker, and shine!

You reached for Bear’s jugular too soon, you tried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

Threatened by shareholders at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

Well you wore out your welcome with fairness opinions,
rode on the legalese.

Come on you trader, you slayer of brokers,
come on you bully, you banker, you piker, and shine!

As a lyricist I make a better babysitter, so feel free to improve my high-speed effort.


  1. Pretty good lyrics.
